AKG K702 Annie VS. He-400?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

A quite basic question, but I am unaware of the advantages or disadvantages of each. I began my "audiophile" journey with the Dt880 premium 250 ohm, but decided to return those after I found them too laid back and boring for me. I'm now looking into buying either of the two above. My cousin purchased the Dt990 pros and I quite enjoyed them and that sound signature, but found it too exaggerated for me. 

 

I really enjoy just being able to call my headphones a planar magnetic designed headphone, but quality wise I do not know which would be better. As for amps, I plan on getting a Schiit Magni fairly soon in the future. Price, they're very similar, so there are no advantages there. Biggest thing for me is:

#1: Which has more detailed / quantity bass

#2: Which is more comfortable

#3: Which has a more similar sound signature to the Dt990's, but a more forward midrange than the Dt990's

#4: Which would suit most genres, excluding things like classical / jazz. 

 

Thanks! If any more information is needed, I will reply very quickly with anything you need to help me out.

I have a he400 and I have hear my friends k702 with the k712 pads. To me, the akg has very smooth mids where as the he400 has more recessed mids.
